1936 -- For the first and only time in Olympic history, the Vatican City fielded teams in several events, including the Womens' Rifles. The team, lead by Mother Superior Maria Grazia, didn't win any medals, but became minor celebrities. In 1937, they did an international exhibition tour of several Latin American countries and then the United States, where using the stage name "Nuns With Guns" they were a major attraction at the 1937 State Fairs in Iowa and Minnesota.
Bomb Drill Was Taking Place During Marathon Explosions This is highly suspect. It is very, very unlikely that they have the manpower to conduct "drills" on the busiest day of the year for city services in Boston, when they have extra people working just to handle the crowds and the usual mess caused by the influx of the extra people in the city...coincidence to have a drill on the same day an event happened, but to have a drill on the day of the Boston Marathon just stretches the credibility.
